Brainwashing German children
: Davids Medienkritik, the German/English blog quoted a few times today, has this shocking report on a children’s news program that is riddled with anti-American propaganda. For example, there’s this from one program:
The prisoners should tell as much as they can about Al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. But since most of them won’t do it voluntarily, they are mistreated, beaten and even tortured. And: they have no chance to consult with an attorney. Human rights organizations like Amnesty International find it terrible that the US government decides on its own when human rights should be upheld and when not.
Says the weblog:
In Germany the Nazis and most recently the SED (former ruling Communist party in East Germany) thought it right to use media manipulation of children for the purpose of indoctrinating them with propaganda. The WDR places itself, with its one-sided, biased and manipulative reporting on its children’s radio program in the same ugly tradition.
